The ninth edition of the Vietnam International Travel Mart, the leading annual tourism trade show in the country, holds from Thursday to Sunday after two years of disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Themed “New normal New Opportunities,’’ the trade fair was one of the important events for resuming business activities, connecting partners to restore and develop tourism across the country.
The Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Doan Van Viet said this at the opening ceremony.
It took place two weeks after Vietnam’s move to fully reopen borders for international visitors on March 15.
The event had gathered more than 500 businesses from 52 Vietnamese localities, and countries and regions including Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Turkey to showcase their products, organisers said.
To stimulate customers’ demand, over 10,000 promotional tours, 100,000 flight tickets and more than 1,000 gifts were expected to be offered at the trade fair.
